He said that all the funds are registered by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Nyamali added that the Vantage Dollar Fund, being an open-ended Unit Trust Scheme, seeks to provide investors with bias for Dollar denominated securities access to such securities, which ordinarily would be inaccessible to them by virtue of the minimum amount typically required to make such investments. It helps investors to invest primarily in Corporate and Sovereign Eurobonds.
